In the first two episodes of this Financial Close Task Management webinar series, we looked at the benefits of replacing Excel spreadsheets with a dedicated closing task management software and applying automation to manual tasks. Once you have these improvements in place the next step is to transform your financial close into a truly holistic process.
Use separate applications for close task management and other financial close processes like manual journal entries and account reconciliation.
Manually create and post journals from a closing task.
Lose time on dependent tasks for account reconciliations.
